Our 75 Cornish Cross meat Chickens arrived a day early, and I’m caught off guard. So, I quickly round up the chiddlers and head to the post office (to pick up the chicks) then it’s time to set up their brooder. (RESOURCES BELOW):

NOTE: The brooder supplies listed ARE the products I use. Well... unless they've been discontinued, then I link to a similar one (that I would buy). The links above ARE affiliate links. So, I make 4% commission. It's not that much at this point, but enough to take the family out to each a couple times a month. YEH! I figured since I'm already linking to the stuff, might as well get a commission. I appreciate your support!

NOTE: Yes, some of those links above are affiliate links. What? Well, that just means I get a small commission if you actually click through that link and buy something. Hey, I figured if I’m gonna link to the actual stuff I use (and recommend) I might as well get a little dough from it, right? I don’t get much, but every little bit helps. Plus, I’m trying to earn a little to cover my time, money and energy we’re putting into this... You know, make it sustainable so that I can keep on keeping on. THANKS for your support.
